Smokescreens contain members of Californian bands Terry Malts and Plateaus The group released their sophomore album, Used To Yesterday, in July. Our Song of the Day, “Someone New,” was an early single off the album, a catchy twee indie pop track. Used To Yesterday was recorded at Primitive Ears, a small studio in North Hollywood, and was mixed by Kyle Mullarky (The Allah-Lahs). Used To Yesterday sees the band expanding their sound into classic indie pop territory, making them a perfect fit for their new label Slumberland Records.
